Eclectic Week

Hockey19 Jun 23, 2009 06:06 PM

Ok- here goes- after soliciting opinions and doing my reading- here are the winning restaurants for 1 fun week..
Saturday - Muriel's- repeat visit- loved it the first time. Why not enjoy another Saturday night at a restaurant that gets rave reviews.
Sunday - Green Goddess- looks like a fun night- BYOB will help the wallet but they may have drinks by August.
Monday Late dinner at Acme Oyster. after touring the plantations. Guilty pleasure as it is wife's personal favorite.
Tuesday- Abita Restaurant. Getting out of Dodge for a fun day of baseball and beer
Wednesday- Dante's Kitchen- can't wait-killer reviews hope it lives up to the hype.
Thursday- Commander's for lunch. 25 cent martinis make for a late night dinner so Bar UnCommon for late dinner(have to have a drink from Chris)
Friday- Departure-UGH

Please feel free to comment on the "fun"factor or suggestions for options

    Coolinary restaurants beginning to appear. 18 are up on the Coolinary site. Hoping Muriel's special is still available although it looked like a very limited event.

      Yes to Abita. Love the beer- will have to figure out the food.
      Have not seen any Coolinary specials yet no matter where I check. We enjoyed them last year. Hoping they return

        New Orleans convention/tourism bureau site posts the COOLinary specials . About 10 rest. are posted thus far with "menus coming soon". Most will run Aug.and Sept. so it will probably be a few weeks before most post. A google search of new orlreans COOLinary will bring it up.

          I have not figured out how to link old posts to new, but if you search, last week a gentleman asked for 1st anniversary ideas. I found a ton of specials for June and July as well at places such as Ralph's, Mr. B's, Muriels, and a few others.

              Now I just need to try some of those specials out myself. Muriel's blue crab 4-course meal sounded delectable.

          If you're coming in Aug., be sure to check the COOLinary specials.

            Are you talking about the Abita Brewpub restaurant? It's terrible. Good beer, bad food.

              AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot agree more. If you're in Abita and want good food, head to Camellia Cafe!

              -Sazarac Bar is absolutely on the list for an afternoon visit.. Cure is a new name. Will have to look for it. Acme is Acme. One of our fiirst NOLA visits 15 years ago. Old friends are great- warts and all.

                I think it is a fabulous agenda for a fun week. Consider the Sazerac Bar (it opens the first of July) for a historic NOLA treat. Acme is not my favorite, but as it is your wife it is forgiven. Also try CURE for great cocktails
